Notes/Commercial Description:
We originally brewed Halcyon as our first summer seasonal, but since all the Halcyon fans (a.k.a: kiteheads) asked so nicely, we now brew this magical brew year around. Besides, who doesn't want a little taste of summer on a dark winter night?

We are proud of all our beers, but Halcyon is special. We are in “the wheat state” after all, so the pressure was on us to make a wheat beer, but we knew it had to be great. Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat is the result of that Midwestern angst, an all-American wheat with real Kansas-grown grain in the brew.

We start with raw Kansas white wheat in the mix to give it a nice edge, but what really makes it shine is the hops. We use “hop-bursting” late in the brewing process and this gives Halcyon its palate of tropical fruit flavors & aromas with a bright and refreshing taste like the best days of summer.

4.05/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a Surly tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy yellowish golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid three fingers of white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of clingy lacing around the glass.

Smell: A wheat and grain forward aroma with nice hints of citrus fruit and earthy hops. Wheat and pale malt upfront with hints of grains, biscuit, cracker, straw, and yeast. Subtle hints of white pepper. Citrus hop hints of orange, pineapple, apricot, melon, and lemon. Earthy and floral hop hints as well. A pretty nice and zesty wheat beer aroma that is well balanced by the hops.

Taste: Like it smells, a zesty and bready wheat driven taste with nice notes of citrus fruit and earthy hops. Lots of wheat upfront along with malt notes of biscuit, grains, crackers, yeast, and straw. A little white pepper spice and honey like sweetness. Citrus hop notes of orange, apricot, pineapple, lemon, and melon. Earthy and floral hop presence with notes of grass. A pretty solid well balanced taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Crisp and smooth. Fairly drying.

Overall: A solid wheat ale. Hoppier than usual for the style but it lends a nice balance.

Can at Old Chicago, Lincoln NE:

Into a pint glass:

A: slightly hazy golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that dies within thirty seconds

S: sweet wheat, slightly earthy hops, and just a tad of pepper

T: sweet through the previously mentioned flavors and adding a nice little peppery kick in the back, no aftertaste, dry finish

M: holy smooth, wow, I mean I just had Gumballhead within the past week and thought that was smooth, the way this rolls across the tongue and mouth is almost practically indescribable, other than that, its light, and very sessionable

O: I will definitely seek this beer out again as this is very good for the style and very good to me, there's a nice refreshing aspect that goes well with this time of year

3.71/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

Best by date on can of 7/31/13.

Appearance: Slightly hazy dirty yellow color with a frothy white three finger head. Looks at home in a weizen glass.

Aroma: Wheat, a little white pepper, and some earth from the hops. Very similar grain aroma to their 8-Bit Pale Ale.

Taste: Very close to the aroma with a nice hoppy brightness to the palate. Starts with a little hop bitterness mixed with a good wheat flavor that develops into an almost rye-like character from the malt. I've had many of Tallgrass's offerings and apart from their stout all the malt bills have this rye-like flavor to them. Finish is smooth with a little earthy hop flavor. A little disappointed because it's advertised as having 'tropical fruit' hop character but I'm really not getting any of that. Still a great wheat beer and sessionable at 5% ABV.

Mouthfeel: Just below medium in body and refreshing. Average carbonation. Really good drinkability.

Final Thoughts: While nothing about Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat really wows the palate, there is a great deal to be enjoyed in this beer. The refreshing and drinkable mix of flavors make it a perfect summer beer and one of the best Wheat Ales I've ever had. Would I drink it again? Yes.

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

Look: Hazy deep pale straw color. Fluffy white head, slow recession. Light airy lacing.

Aroma: Floral, sweet, and some fruits in the beginning. Faint malts and wheat later on.

Taste: Very fruity and sweet before the grainy, wheat body. Some orange notes to begin. Light hop finish, barely noticeable.

Mouthfeel: Very smooth, clean finish.

Overall: A noticeable fruity presence with nice sweetness, not my favorite wheat beer but good for a summer evening.

Tallgrass Halcyon Unfiltered Wheat Beer
12 oz. can, no apparent freshness dating but marked "13 056"

From the get-go you can tell that this is no standard wheat, you can smell the hops as you pour it. The appearance, however, is typical. It looks like a cross between a Belgian witbier and a Bavarian Hefeweizen, although the bright white head drops readily though, more like a wittier. Still, it leaves some nice lacing as it goes, even if only temporarily.

The aroma is hoppy. It smells more like a "beer" than a wheat beer, although there is a good deal of wheat present, and a bit of yeast. The hops are mainly citrusy, but also a bit grassy and perhaps spicy, although the spiciness might be from the yeast.

In the mouth it's light to light-medium in body, and fizzy-crisp.

The flavor displays the hops more fully than the aroma suggests, and there's some pine in there along with the citrusy notes. The wheat flavor remains solid, and the yeast adds a light touch of chalkiness and (seemingly) some light spiciness - in that sense it's more like a Belgian witbier than a Bavarian Hefeweizen. I'm quite sure they're using a Belgian strain; and, in fact, have intended a Belgian-style wit with a bit of citrusy American hops thrown in. And it works. It's still refreshing and balanced but the citrusy/piney hops give it an unexpected twist and an added component of complexity. Nicely done!

Can into a pint glass. Beer is yellow and hazy with a white head, small bubbles, low retention, looks good.

Aroma is mildly hoppy, a little yeast, smells fine.

Beer is drinkable, wet on the palate, mild aftertaste, a little grainy, a little sweet from the yeast, not a great beer but there is nothing wrong with it, I just don't think I'd have it again.

First time trying something from this brewery; picked this can up as a part of a mix6 on a trip to St. Louis.

12oz can, very cloudy tangerine-orange colored ale, decent white head, leaves great lacing on the glass. Aromas are orange, wheat, not much else. Tastes are more orange- mandarin, tropical, sweet, wheat, lemongrass. Body is medium, creamy, a bit chalky, lower carbonation. Overall, the mandarin orange flavor is overpowering and too dominant. This wasn't bad, just not something I'd get again.

It pours pale yellow and hazy. Lots of sediment settle on the bottom of the glass.
Not a strong aroma only a light lemon smell.
This is a very good tasting American wheat beer. The dull bland flavor of most American wheat is missing and replaced with a refreshing citrus taste.
Overall this is one the better American Wheat that I have had. Bonus point for coming out of a can and being so reasonably priced.

12oz can poured into a pint glass

A: Pours a hazy golden color, about 2 fingers of foamy white head that doesn't stick around, decent lacing.

S: Wheat right away a hint of hops and lemon as well.

T: Sweet biscuit note up front followed by grassy herbal note and a hint of citrus notes.

M: Light body, fair amount of carbonation that finishes slightly dry.

O: A great sessionable beer and the can format makes it perfect to take tailgating, camping or the beach.

One indication of The CANQuest's (TM) notoriety, notoriousness (?) came during the recent SAVOR 2012 fest in DC where I was pouring for Green Flash and Tallgrass was one of the other three brewers in our quad. I remarked on the fact that I really dig their CANs and that I had a CAN of Halcyon at home awaiting review. Their brewer replied that he already knew who I was and that they are awaiting Halcyon's inclusion in The CANQuest (TM)! Well, without further ado ...

From the CAN: "Our thanks to Bill Mai, the wheat farmer from Wallace County, Kansas that grows our wheat!"; For the previous reviewer, the date stamp is actually not all that cryptic - it is the Julian Date, that is, the last two digits of the Calendar Year followed by a three digit code corresponding to the day out of 365 or 366. Mine read "12 161", marking it as the 161st day of CY 2012. Born on or expires by? Unknown. Onward!

What is it with me and Kansas CANs today?!? I wonder if the lovely Kansas, wife of Appalachian BC's head brewer, is aware of all of this. Her name was originally to be "CANdace", but it got bastardized to its current form. If I ever have a daughter, her name will be Penelope CANdace, or little Penny Candy as its diminutive. CAN we have a review, please?!?

The Crack revealed yet another brimful craft CAN! Beautiful. The Glug was flawless and I had a finger-and-a-half of fizzing, bone-white head that popped, gurgled and fizzed its way out of existence. Color was a fizzy, hazy golden-yellow and I raised a toast as a wussy to Greg Koch. Nose was really clean, with a peppery spiciness up front accompanied by a slight fruitiness and a light mintiness. I do not know what I was expecting, but that was not it! Mouthfeel was fairly full, thanks to all of the carbonation and the taste was subtle, less intense than on the nose, but with all of the characteristics noted earlier. The peppery bite really came through on the finish, making it very dry, indeed. This definitely belongs in my summer beach cooler and is worthy of your CANsideration, also.

3.6/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving type: 12-ounce can. There is a cryptic batch code printed on the bottom but no discernable freshness date.

Appearance: Poured into a 330 ml weizen glass. The color is pale orange and has a lot of lemonade tones. It is hazy but not cloudy. Two fingers of thick, white head dissipated to leave a thick ring around the edge.

Smell: Up front, it is pretty hoppy for a wheat beer; there is a lot of grapefruit citrus on top of orange and lemon. Smells a little like cantaloupe, too. It is a nice surprise. However, there is a solid scent of wheat and pale malts.

Taste: It has a wheaty and full mouthfeel that offers orange, lemon, and grapefruit citrus. The cantaloupe from the smell is there, too. There is subtle spice, but the citrus provides a nice zest on top of a solid foundation of wheat.

Drinkability: It’s decent. It is probably what I would expect from a wheat beer from Kansas.

Poured from a can to a hefeweizen glass. Deep hazy orange with a generous frothy head. Fairly ight on lacing. The nose is heavy on citrus and lemon zest. The taste is mostly citrus, quite sweet. Hops are very subdued but there with a floral undercut. Mouthfeel is almost creamy, long lasting. Pretty good wheat offering.

Thanks to woodychandler for yet another canned beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of wheat and lemons. Taste is the same, wheat and lemon, some bitterness, a bit mild. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall does not have the refreshing qualities of some wheat beers, mediocre.

12oz can, Bruery tulip, "12 193" on the can's bottom edge, which means best by July 12, 2012.

The color is a light spectrum gold that deepens and clouds as the pour finishes, this is unfiltered after all. Halcyon has a respectable head; I had to halt the pour about two thirds of the way through and it retains two fingers of surprisingly pure white easily.

Aromas are faint and evasive. Delicate lemon zest, a clean and direct wheat note. I think my palate and nose have lost some of their ability since I stopped regularly reviewing.

This is a very quenching beer. The flavors are delicate, with no attempt to weight any aspect. It's straw and wheat kernels, green grass, lemon, and Cascade hops. It would be lager-like, but for a yeast background that is more bread than cracker and ever so slightly fruity.

As its other parts are not overbearing, the body is thin. I said before its quenching, which it achieves by combining a slight tartness or acid with a clean mineral finish.

I'm a bit disappointed that it isn't hoppier. I did the date calculation at the store and was pretty sure that it was fresh enough, but if Tallgrass dates six months out, this is as good as four months old. Halcyon is an affordable craft can summer refresher and if I pick up another six I will re-review.

Big foaming bright white head, atop a clouded golden orange body with fine intricate lacing going down the sides of the glass. Aroma has sharp wheat notes with hints of citrus, mild herbal hops in the nose. Straight forward good tasting American pale wheat, sharp wheat hints of acidity with chalky powdered yeast cakes in the finish. Extremely drinkable light hop character, but the zesty lemon character really makes this a refreshing beer, I'm glad to hear that it went year round. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied but the yeast character gives it some added girth...healthy carbonation level finishes evenly balanced between sweet malts/wheat and dry yeast with herbal citrus character. Ovrall very tasty American wheat out of the can, I love seeing canned offerings out there that taste this good, the first 12 ounce offering I've seen from Tallgrass most of their other beers come in pounder 16 ounce cans.

Thanks to JeepCop for this can...

A: Poured into an imperial pint glass, this beer is a nice cloudy lemony yellow with a whispy pure white head. There is some nice lacing going on as this beer drinks.

S: It smells of grains, some lemon, and a touch or orange peel. There is a little spice to it, but it's subtle and could be attributed to the zesty citrus notes.

T: This beer starts off with a nice sweetness followed immediately but a citrusy zip. There is definitely a minor spice to this beer. Again, it;s really subtle, but it's there. The flavors mix well on the palate and it finishes with more citrus and spice.

M: Light bodied beer. The flavors are great, but the carbonation seems a bit stingy. It finishes a bit dry.

O: This beer is decent. It's not on the level of some other wheat beers I've had, but I'd drink it again if I had the chance.

Got this in my NOOB Bif Box.

A- All hazy wheat colored with a fingers worth of head that dissipates quickly into a ring around the glass.

S- Like rancid aluminium. Some citrus.

T- Like rancid aluminium. I really dislike wheats. This one does have some redeeming citrus qualities. Even some complexity with the wheat, the tangy citrus and some mango. I wish it were drier.

M- I hate the fake sugar corn starch aftertaste.

O- If I am going to like a wheat beer, it needs to taste crisp and natural. This one doesn't.

Pours a cloudy, unfiltered straw color. Soapy head forms leaving alittle lace before leaving the picture. Aroma is full of wheat, grains, and some floral/citrus.

In the taste, more wheat, somewhat grainy and sweet. Mild citrus notes with suggestions of lemon peel. Little to no bitterness. Comes across somewhat juicy. Light bodied feel, though a touch thin.

Overall, a pretty decent pale wheat. Too much raw wheat to be a hefe or a wit, this fits the style nicely. At $1.79 a can, this quenching beer could be a summer staple.

Consumed 3 cans, review from written notes.

It pours a murky pale orange color, with a billowing head of white foam. Long lasting head retention, with a collar of spotty lace that accumulates over the course of the glass. Rapidly rising carbonation. Looks very classic.

Grassy and wheaty, light grainy sweetness, a touch of orange and some yeast esters. Fairly mild and straightforward, was hoping for more hop presence here.

Clean, crisp and zesty with a light hop bitterness in the finish. The bulk of the flavor is focused on the smooth wheaty sweetness, with minor floral and orange notes from the hops. Light carbonation, smooth mellow feel. Less hop character than anticipated from the reviews here, but there was a mild presence. Finishes somewhat dry, thankfully not overly sweet, relatively clean. Quenching and light bodied. Pouring in the yeast sediment seems to add a degree of smoothness to the feel.

Overall a simple quenching wheat beer... versatile with food, an everyday fridge staple, an all-around session candidate.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #54 (July 2011):

Nice crowning of white lace; dull, cloudy golden-beige hue. Smells of lemon tea, bread crust and nutty yeast. Deep smoothness leads to a lean crispness, which really opens this beer up. A wheat malt bomb in a way. Bready, yet semidry with a mild nuttiness in the middle. Modest showing of balancing hops. Lemongrass, earthy yeast, doughy biscuit and a very faint saltiness display some complexities. Finishes clean and grainy. Halcyon ends up being a nearly perfect snapshot of what an American Pale Wheat Ale should be, especially for a style that perhaps doesn’t get enough love. No bells or whistles, just a great wheat beer.

A: Hazy lemon-drop yellow with a thick and foamy head--but not the greatest retention; lacing is okay

S: Grainy, grassy up front followed by citrus, coriander, lemon rind, and a slight lemon-grass aroma--smells like a nice grainy wheat beer should; let's do this

T: Actually a decent hop bitterness up front which I was surprised by since I didn't detect much hops in the aroma; lots of nice citrus up front with some grassy and grainy qualities underneath

F: Medium to light body but just enough texture--not as watery as many of the style; really clings to the roof of the mouth and it even a bit sticky

O: A real nice, easy drinking beer; one of my favorites of the style

A-Pours a ton of frothy dense white foam that is there til the last drop. Murky golden tan color with white particulates.
S-Unusual in a wheat that the hops (NW US floral citra hops) burst through with delicious aromas inviting that first drink. There might be some wheat and yeast in there but hard to tell.
T-Hoppiest wheat I've ever had but I like it and I'm not normally a hop head-great thing about this beer is the hops do not leave a lingering resiny bitter aftertaste. I guess my only complaint is the fresh hop flavor dominates what might be delicious wheat and yeast.
M-Full bodied and smooth
D-Damn high, this is a solid great tasting beer.
O-This is not what I expected but a very drinkable great tasting smooth wheat-what else could you ask for, oh yeah I picked this up for $4 for a 6 pack. I better stock up on this one. Fantastic. My new favorite wheat.
